Joe Biden vs Trump
Joe Biden was elected president of the US, winning the battleground state of Pennsylvania to reach the 270 votes needed to secure a majority in the electoral college. Donald Trump rejected the outcome, saying his opponent was “rushing to falsely pose as the winner”.
Biden also won Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan and Arizona, according to race calls by the Associated Press.
Biden has taken into the new top role, following Donald Trump’s hesitant departure. And to say the least, the transfer of presidential power has been a trending topic with lots of drama.
Trump left the White House as president of the US, for the last time, capping 1462 of the most tumultuous and some may add, worst, days in presidential history.
After four years as president, Trump has been dubbed by many as the worst president ever. It was four years of incendiary, divisive and dishonest rhetoric.
Just a few weeks ago on January 6, he incited violence and a white supremacist mob entered the capitol, where two people died. They descended on Washington to protest the certification of Joseph R. Biden’s victory in November over President Trump.
The mob’s march on the Capitol came just after Trump encouraged supporters to do so during a 70-minute address rehashing his false claims that Democrats stole the election.
Those who rampaged the halls of Congress included infamous white supremacists and conspiracy theorists.
Trump supporters converged on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, where hundreds of rioters crashed through barricades, climbed through windows and walked through doors, wandering around the hallways.
For the capitol breach, Trump will have to face a second impeachment trial.
